We had great service for a lowkey but romantic dinner on Labor Day. The special was excellent, the wine was tasty, and my partner's meal was delicious as well. Highly recommend for a nice dinner out.

Sopra Bistro was a great find during our weekend visit in Lake Geneva. Started with the grilled Caesar salad, a must try! Then came the loch Dorca salmon, such a tasty surprise. Next was the Coppa Mascarpone. You will not be disappointed!

The restaurant is nice, we had a very good service but the price for the food given was excessive. The steak wasn't very tasty.
